The Unholy by Heather Graham
The 1940s: Hard-boiled detectives and femmes fatale are box-office gold. In one iconic scene, set in a deserted museum, the private eye arrives too late, and the buxom beauty is throttled by an ominous Egyptian priest.
Now: The Black Box Cinema immortalizes Hollywood's Golden Age in its gallery of film noir tributes. But the mannequin of that Egyptian priest is hardly lifeless.
He walks—and a young starlet dies a terrifying death.
Movie mogul Eddie Archer's son is charged with the grisly murder. Eddie calls agent Sean Cameron, who specializes in irregular investigations. As part of an FBI paranormal forensics team, Cameron knows that nightmares aren't limited to the silver screen.
Working with special-effects artist Madison Darvil—who has her own otherworldly gifts—Cameron delves into the malevolent force animating more than one movie monster.…
I wasn't really excited to read this book. First, I'm inbetween books so I never really want to read a book that has only one book and no series. I personally like series' more than anything. Second, my aunt gave me the book and lets just say I usually dont really like the books that she reads and gives to me (I, of course, would never tell her this). and Third, I dont like film noir movies. You know the detective movies, where it's all black and white and after asking the big breasted woman what happened and she tells him some convoluted story of a monster coming to life, a narrator does a voice over with the "I didn't know if I should believe her but her eyes were telling me that she truly believed what she was saying" and you wanna just scream at him that "yeah right I know you wern't even lookin at her eyes!".....yeah those movies! I really dont like those! After reading I thought the book was.....ok. Would I read it again? No probably not. It was ok and the story was good but.....not good enough to read again.
